LKAB publishes Annual and Sustainability Report for 2023

March 27, 2024

LKAB’s Annual and Sustainability Report for 2023 is now available at 

The Annual and Sustainability Report presents the development during 2023 and highlights how LKAB contributes to vibrant communities and growth globally. The report also illuminates the challenges facing LKAB, such as permitting processes and the capacity on the Ore Railway, but also great opportunities. Our operations form the basis of many long value chains. 

“We present a strong result for the year but see continued challenges ahead. The year ended with relatively high production at the same time as the derailments on the Ore Railway occur and show the sensitivity of the line. The expansion of the Ore Railway will be decisive for both current volumes and future production increases. Here and now, we focus on how capacity can be ensured in the near term,” says Jan Moström, President and CEO of LKAB. 

The report presents continued good results for the development of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves. The intensive exploration work during the recent years means that the Mineral Reserves amount to 1.1 billion tonnes and Mineral Resources to 4.6 billion tonnes, corresponding to an increase of 43 percent for the Mineral Resources compared with 2022. It can also be put into perspective that two billion tonnes have been mined since LKAB’s start in 1890.

“In a time of increasing geopolitical uncertainty, during the year we have achieved some important milestones in our transformation. At the same time, permits that are essential for our planned development regrettably appear to be delayed,” says Jan Moström.
